I had a great week this last week. My new Compnions is Elder Le sunho and he is awesome. he was actually just working in the mission ofice as an Office Assistant like i was and he is amazing. he works super hard! i wouldnt want to spent my last transfer with anyone else. we are actually trying to find new investigatros right now. we have met alot of people on the street who say they have interest so this week as we try to contact them all we will see if they really do or not. but our other investigators are just kind of not very interested at the moment.
I actually over the last week and a half have learned so much! specifically i have learned alot about what it means to truly love people. if you read James 2:15 it says 'faith without works is dead' and when i read that scripture i thought about how the important thing in having faith is actually acting in accordance with that faith. and then i tried something. i switched out the word 'faith' with 'love' and it turns out that Love without works is dead as well. for some reason it never clicked all the way until now that if we love people we have to show it trough actions. alond the way i knoew it and had an idea of what that meant. but for some reason it clicked this week and i understand that principle more than anything i think i ever have. and so i have been trying to apply it all over the place. and it has been so wonderful. all of the sudden everything i do is no longer about me. ive always had these underlying misconceptions that if i work hard enough I will be a good missionary, if i work hard enough I can be succesful and as true as that is i think i missed the essence of missionary work. of course i want to work hard and i have tried my best to work hard throughout my mission but for some reason there were times where it was really really hard to keep doing that. especially last transfer elder No and I kept pushing along. but it just wasnt enough. and then it clicked that this work is awork of love. and one thing to another. the Lord had finally humbled me enough to the point that i could accept that message fully. I was finally ready to hear what he has been trying to tell me for the last 20 years. the whole reason god gave us life is to bless others. Mark 8:37 attests to that. and the Work and glory of God is to bring to pass the immortality and Eternal life of man. (Moses 1:39). so if we are going to lose our life for his sake we need to do all we can to help others rise to Eternal life. as soon as i started workind towars that end, a whole new power came into my life. I understand what life is all about now. It is about helping others.
